Despite cutbacks, still ... A Cut AbOVB 

You notice them walking down 
the street, recognize them in a 
grocery store, mark them cutting 
in and out of traffic, in a crowd 
they stand out from others. What 
makes West Virginia University 
students a cut above ordinary 

They take pride in their heritage, 
the school's athletic achieve- 
ments, their dedication to learning, 
the reputations of the colleges and 
of being WVU students. 

Students felt special during the 
Marching Band's halftime perfor- 
mances at the home football 
games. Pride swelled in the hearts 
of students as the band formed 
the shape of the state and began 
"Country Roads." 

The mention of Mountaineer 
Week always made students hold 
up their heads. The chance to ex- 
perience West Virginia's culture, 
its enduring traditions and hardy 
customs which make the state 
unique, was missed by few. Just 
the thoughts of funnel cake, the 
Street Fair and the art and craft 
exhibits made students smile. 

The football team's second 

bowl appearance in two years 
drew on their well of pride. The trip 
to Jacksonville, Florida, for the 
Gator Bowl was made by 
thousands of fans who showed the 
Florida State Seminoles and the 
nation that they have that Moun- 
taineer Spirit. 

Academically students did not 
lack for pride either. Ac- 
knowledgements of WVU's 19 
Rhodes Scholars were frequent as 
were the accomplishments of the 
chemistry department, the quality 
of the journalism school and the 
achievements of the medical 

A misconception, however, is to 
believe that only students were 
cuts above the ordinary. 

The University took severe 
budget cuts because of the 
economic recession. Regardless 
of the cuts, the type of students 
seen on campus was not greatly 
changed. They realized that the 
University was required by state 
officials to reduce its operating 
costs. This reduction meant a 
decrease in the classes offered.

Faculty and staff were fur- 
loughed days to accommodate 
the required budget cuts. 

Spring break was reduced to a 
weekend and a few week days, 
and another break of the same 
length was scheduled two weeks 
later. Final exams were moved up 
a week, eliminating dead week. 

Speculation about the break, its 
existence at all, was the topic of 
conversation campuswide for 
weeks until University President E. 
Gordon Gee announced the plan 

for complying with requests of the 
Board of Regents. 

Rumors of a one-session sum- 
mer school or its elimination trav- 
eled across the campus, alarming 
students who had already made 
tentative plans for summer

education. Some students were 
forced to quit school until the 
money to continue was available.

Tornados Take U For a Tumble 

"Hey, what happened 
to that big tree that was 
in front of E. Moore?" 

"I'm not sure, but the 
old Christmas tree is 
gone, tool" 

Those landmarks did 
not just disappear during 
the summer. Mother 
Nature reared her mighty 
head in the form of two 
tornados and removed 
hundreds of years of 
existence in a split 
second. Not only were 
trees destroyed, but 
much more devastation 
occurred June 16, 1982. 

It came quickly with no 
warning as the sky 
turned an eerie grayish- 
green, and the 
temperature dropped 
dramatically. About 5:30 
p.m. the wind and rain 
made their way out of the 

Deroofed and disarrayed, 

the Sigma Phi Epsilon house 

stands as proof of nature's 

awesome power. 

With them came two 
tornados which cut paths 
across the Monongahela 
River and into town. 
Moving in two directions, 
the twisters left all they 
touched in disarray. As 
quickly as it began, the 
storm was over, and the 
locals began to estimate 
the damage it left behind. 

One of the tornados 
traveled through 
campus, uprooting trees, 
knocking down power 
lines, and ripping roofs 
off the Sigma Phi Epsilon 
house and the 
Bicentennial House on 
the Mileground. Its path 
followed the river, cut 
into the downtown 
campus, continued up 
Falling Run Road, and 
ended at the Mileground. 

The second tornado 
tore through Westover, 

across the river, through 
the downtown area 
toward South Park. It 
then headed up Hartman 
Run Road and stopped 
near the Mileground. 

This tornado uprooted 
a tree in Woodland 
Terrace, crushing a 
mobile home and killing a 
nine-month-old child. It 
also destroyed the roof 
of Fox Automotive, blew 
out windows in several 
businesses, severed 
power lines and blocked 
streets with debris. 

Luckily neither tornado 
touched down 
completely, but the 
damage the storm 
created will not be easily 
forgotten by locals and 
summer school students 
who were here that 
Wednesday afternoon.

Defense 'Shell-shocks' Maryland 

The Mountaineers 
edged a 19-18 victory 
over the Maryland 
Terrapins September 18 
before more than 56,000 
spectators. This home 
opener was played to the 
wire as the Mountie 
defense and a Maryland 
mistake stopped a two- 
point conversion. 

WVU's score included 
a spectacular catch 
made deep in the end 
zone by wide receiver 
Rich Hollins, plus four 
field goals and an extra 
point booted by

back Jeff Hostetler, 
pressured by a Terrapin 
rush, threw a pass from 
the end zone and was 
called for intentional 
grounding. This gave the 
Terps a 2-0 lead. 

WVU gained the lead 
with two field goals of 43

Conquering Red Tape for Degree 

Registration! The mere 
mention of the word drew 
a variety of reactions. 

One student noted of 
registration procedures, 
'It seems as though they 
work against the student. 
In many ways they fail to 
live up to the needs and 
expectations of 

But most students 
were satisfied with the 
preregistration process 
of submitting proposed 
schedules to the Office of 
Admissions and Records 
prior to the date of 
general registration. 

Students not only 
secured enrollment in 
classes, but also avoided 
long lines on the day of 

Overall, pre- 
registration was viewed 
as efficient by the 
majority of students. 

However, the course 
adjustment process 

frustrated and 
disillusioned students. 
Perhaps the biggest flaw 
of the process was the 
time involved in 
rearranging one's 

Before any 
adjustments could be 
made, a freshman or 
sophomore waited in line 
to obtain his academic 
file from the Student 
Services Center. After 
obtaining his file, he 
proceeded to yet another 
line where he waited to 
see an adviser, and 
finally he was permitted 
to adjust his schedule. 

An upperclassman 
simply found his adviser 
during his office hours to 
set an appointment to 
see him. 

Rest assured, 
however, that the 
process was not 
completed. Another line 
awaited the student at 

the Office of Admissions 
and Records where he 
handed in the course 
adjustment form. 

After all that, there was 
little wonder that the 
average student often 
found himself 
disappointed with course 
adjustment procedures. 

Waitlisting was yet 
another facet of the red 
tape. After a certain 
class had been filled, 
students who had 
registered for but had 
failed to be enrolled in 
that class were assigned 
a waitlist number. This 
ensured that after the 
initial two week 
add/drop period all 
available spaces would 
be filled. 

However, this practice 
presented a dilemma for 
those students who were 
waitlisted and failed to 
become enrolled in a

registration, particularly 
the course adjustment 
process, left much to be 
desired. However, as 
long as those procedures 
got the job done, there 
was little chance that 
they would be modified

Activity Thrives 


Surviving in college 
does not necessarily 
mean getting good 
grades, having a clean 
room, and hoping to find 
letters in your mailbox. 
The key to existing lies in 
entertainment — living 
for the NIGHTLIFE. 

One way to decide a 
college's potential is to 
look at the diverse social 
recreations — ask any 
college student. When 
someone asks, "How is 
school?," the student 
replies, "The parties are 
great; Sunnyside is a lot 
of fun; dancing at the 
bars is fantastic." No 
mention of academics. 

Morgantown has 
opportunities for every 
type of student to enjoy 

Mid-week blues soon turn 

into highs at one of the most 

popular bars in Sunnyside, Dr. 


himself. There are bars 
for dancing and drinking, 
parties for socializing, 
and the private dates 
that go on. 

Dancing, an easy way 
to get to know people, is 
very popular. Downtown 
includes Speakeasy, 
Friday's, and 
Underground Railroad for 
the dancing crowd. By 
letting yourself go, 
dancing is a great way to 
celebrate a test, a 
cancelled class, or the 
middle of the week. For 
the times when we need 
to mellow out, just sit 
back, relax, and have a 
few drinks. The Chestnut 
Pub is an excellent laid 
back bar. Of course. 

depending on the 
company, any bar has 
the potential to be the 

Sunnyside is, without a 
doubt, the most 
recognizable place for 
drinking around the 
University. A new student 
may not know where his 
classes are, but he can 
find all the bars in 
Sunnyside. It could be 
because the bars aren't 
tucked into side streets 
as they are downtown. 
To have a good time is 
the primary purpose of 
those heading for 
Sunnyside, and they do. 

Parties — frat, 
sorority, floor, street, and 
private — provide a 

good time. Any night of 
the week will find 
students saying, "Hey, 
come over tonight; I'm 
having a party." Music 
sets the pace for the 
party, rowdy or relaxed. 
WVU definitely does 
not lack in the 
NIGHTLIFE department. 
Students can be found 
doing just about 
everything from partying 
or going to a movie at the 
Lair. If anybody wants to 
do something, it's likely 
he'll find others who 
share that interest and a 
place to engage in it in 
Morgantown. NIGHTLIFE 
— the only way to stay 
sane at college!!

"You're listening to the 
all new U-92." This 
phrase had quickly 
become known to 
students and the 
Morgantown community. 
After years of 
preparation, WVU had its 
own radio station, 

WWVU-FM was a 
member of the National 
Association of 
Broadcasters, the 
Broadcasting System, 
andtheABC-FM Radio 
Network. Noncom-

results to the public, and 
entertained with special 
programming. U-92 was 
on the air 134 hours per 
week, twelve months a 

Musical programming 
was primarily album- 
oriented rock. Many 
alternative styles, 
however, could be found 
during scheduled time 
periods throughout the 

week. Some of these 
included jazz, reggae, 
classical, bluegrass, big 
band, funk, and blues. 

With a news staff of 25 
and a public affairs staff 
of 20, U-92 constantly 
kept people informed. 
The station received 
information from the 
ABC-FM Network, the 
Associated Press Wire 
Service and its own news 

The station also aired 

the 'Campus Calendar', 
which informed students 
of upcoming University 
events. 'News Views' 
allowed students to give 
their own commentary on 
current issues. Other 
services included ski 
reports, concert 
information and free air 
time to campus political 

With a sports staff of 
15, WWVU-FM 
extensively covered 
University sports. On- 
the-scene pre-game, 
halftime and postgame 
capsule reports were 
broadcast live from every 
WVU football and 
basketball game, home 
or away. 

WWVU-FM also had 
many special programs. 
"Dragnet" and "The 
Unexplainable" provided 
drama for suspense fans. 

Two or three times 
each semester, U-92 also 
featured interviews with

tuition or books or rent

Still, others found 
those scarce jobs to gain 
experience, preparing 
them for future careers. 
Such businesses as the 
Daily Athenaeum or the 
student radio station, U- 
92, were ideal for 
journalism and 
communications majors. 

Career Days were 
opportunities for 
corporations to come to 
the campus to recruit 
students. Interviews 
allowed students to 
determine if that 
company was right for 
them. Corporate officials 
could also decide if the 
students would fit in with 
their organization. 

For the majority of 
working students, it was 
theabundancy of fast 
food restaurants which 
gave them employment. 

Local shops and 
grocery stores downtown 
and at the Mountaineer 
Mall also hired many 

The work-study pro- 
gram was used by some 
to help pay for the gas 
bill, January rent or that 
new ruffled blouse. 
Through this financial 
aids program, students 
worked a few hours a 
week helping out at 
various University 

departments such as in 
biology labs, the 
graduate school or jour- 
nalism typing rooms. 

Computer science ma- 
jor Sandy Frush, who 
worked in the geron- 
tology department, said 
she had work-study to 
help out with monthly 
bills and to have extra 
spending money. 
Because it was only to 
supplement her finances, 
she said the financial cut- 
backs that the University 
was forced to make had 
not worried her. If work- 
study had been affected, 
she would have accepted 
the loss of her job. 

Another reason 
students found jobs was 
to get involved. Work-

chemistry senior, while he

26 / Employment 

an Education Provides for a Job 

the University Financial 
Aid Office and local 
employment agencies 
were other avenues for 
job hunting. 

A newspaper 
advertisement caught the 
attention of pre- 
pharmacy major Cindy 
Dean. It announced that 
Hardee's on High Street 
was opening soon and 
was hiring. The 
advantage of working at 
a fast food restaurant for 
Dean was the flexible 
hours she could 
schedule. She needed 
employment to pay for 
tuition and social 
activities. 'I don't think 
it's my parents' place to 
pay for my social life,' 
she said. One drawback 

that Dean noted was that 
the work was not 
challenging nor related to 
her major. 

However, working was 
not for all students. Pre- 
business sophomore 
Susan Kuch discovered 
that work and school did 
not mix. While she 
devoted most of her time 
to her job, her classes 
suffered. So for her and 
many other students, 
employment was 
restricted to summer 

Job opportunities 
following graduation 
were looked at during 
Career Days at the Lair. 
This was a time when 
corporations and 
businesses came to the

Holidays are always 
greeted enthusiastically 
by university students. 
The major holidays 
celebrated on campus 
are Halloween, 
Thanksgiving, Christmas 
and Valentine's Day. 

At Halloween time, 
costume parties were 
held throughout the 
town. Streets, 
apartments, and bars 
were haunted by 
anything from the 
traditional to the totally 

Traditional costumes 
included ghosts, goblins, 
witches, and monsters. 
More bizarre costumes 
were a giant box of Cost 
Cutter macaroni and 
cheese, a large bottle of 
Extra-Strength Tylenol, 
and an oversized bumble 

Many of the specters 
also appeared in full 
costume to cheer on the 
Mountaineers at the East 
Carolina football game. 

'Though most students 
went home for the actual 
Thanksgiving Day feast, 
several apartment 
dwellers had preliminary 
dinners before the week- 
long break. These were 
customary turkey dinners 
with all the trimmings 
that would make any 
mother proud. In some 
cases each guest would 
bring a separate dish to 
celebrate a potluck 
Thanksgiving with friends 
and neighbors. 

These dinners also 
served as a substitute for 
some students who 
would not have a 
traditional meal at home. 

Most students also left 
Morgantown during the 
Christmas holidays, 
although many students 
got into the spirit 
throughout December.

The Band's 

Twirling a New Look 

Fact: It's difficult to 
improve upon anything 
that is already good. 
Challenge: To improve 
the 'Pride of West 
Virginia.' Solution: To 
feature two twirlers 
instead of only one. 

This fall the Marching 
Band had a different look 
with two twirlers, veteran 
Barb Pope and 
newcomer LaRon 

As the band went 
through its various shows 
at football games, fans 
directed their eyes to 
Pope and Langdale like 
moths drawn to lights. 

The two girls were 
seen dancing and twirling 
among the musicians 
and performing a variety 
of moves which allowed 
them to cover most of 
the field. 

Pope, a junior 
majoring in safety, had 
been twirling with the 
band for the past two 

A freshman majoring in 
pre-education, Langdale 
was the newer edition to 
the partnership. 

Both had been twirling 
at the national level and 
had only just quit

own before the games 
could have become 
tedious, but Pope and 
Langdale managed to do 
it, and the work 
apparently paid off to 
become a well- 
choreographed and 
well-performed show. 

Having the twirling 
experience, the girls 
created their own 
choreography. To 
strengthen their skills, 
they participated in 
gymnastics and dancing. 

Before she was 
selected to twirl with the 
band, Langdale and 
Pope had been friends, 
having been in 
competitions together. 

She enjoyed twirling 
alone. Pope said, but a 
duo act was challenging. 
Always working together 
could have been limiting, 
but she thought working 
out individual routines 
with occasional 
combined efforts was 
more interesting. 

Contrary to what one 
may believe, the two did 
not receive any special 
attention from the band. 
They were just ordinary 
members, but one 
drawback. Pope noted, 
was the difficulty of 
knowing all the band

Those 'Fridge Blues 


Hmmm, what have we 
got in the 'fridge? Well, 
there's half a gallon of 
milk, leftover potatoes, 
some strawberry jam, 
half a head of wilted 
lettuce, last Tuesday's 
green beans now 
rainbow-colored, a rolled 
up, dirty sweatshirt. 
(Hey! Where did that 
come from?) 

There's nothing 
appetizing at all. It looks 
like another night of 
eating out. Thank 
goodness for Wings 'n' 
Things, Hardee's, 
Scotto's, Spruce Street 
Sub Shop and the 
countless other lifesaving 
eateries around 

Whether it was Sunday 
dinner for dorm dwellers 
or a break from their 
cooking for apartment 
lodgers, results were the 
same. The proof of the 
local restaurants' 
popularity lay in the 
frequency of Domino's 
delivery cars parked 
outside Arnold Hall, the 
long lines at McDonald's 
and the lack of empty 
tables at Mario's. 

This demand for 
eateries attracted new 
businesses. Hardee's 
offered a menu catering 
to the hamburger and 
roast beef tastes of 
students. Speedy 
Gonzalez provided 
burritos, tacos and beer. 

When a special place 
was needed, The Flame, 
The Old Mill Club, and 
The Lakeview Inn 
provided the setting and 

And the munchies had 
their say in the matter, 
also. Restaurants with 
delivery service had 
much business in the 
evenings when students 
had finished with 
studying or decided to 
take a break, and 
someone had suggested 

Tired of planning 
dinner, of cooking the 
same basic meals, or just 
wanting a change of 
scene, students would 
splurge and eat out. The 
change purse, however, 
ruled how often they 
could sample others'

celebrations have been 
determined to be the 
best kind. Other than the 
city police, not many 
could deny that the 
aftermath of the upset 
victory over the 
Oklahoma Sooners was 
one of the greatest 
celebrations this campus 
has ever witnessed. After 


the final whistle blew, 
revelers flocked by the 
thousands to the streets 
of Sunnyside. It was not 
planned, but students 
seemed to have the 
intuition to meet at the 
bonfire capital of WVU. 
Even the police and 
firemen could not 
damper the spirits of the 
stout-hearted fans. After 
the first bonfire was 
extinguished, it did not 
take long for two more to 
ignite. Although fire 
hazards were a problem, 
the type of celebration 
was hard to compare

types of celebrations

students found that 
hitting a local bar was the

commemorate their 
Others found that 
purchasing a special 
something for 
themselves was a 
fulfilling type of reward. 

Success in the 
classroom has also led to 
the skipping of the rest of 
the day's schedule so 
one could make the best 
of a classic situation. 
Some found cranking the 
stereo and lying back 
was the best form of 
celebration. Others 
found that the Tic or 
other local taverns 
furnished the best 
selection of high-spirits. 

Friday, a celebration in 
itself, was undoubtedly 
the most popular day of 
the week. GIF' in' was a 
favorite pastime of many 
students following a 
rough week of classes. 
The best thing about 
Friday celebrations was 
the fact that everybody 
wanted to party about 
the same basic things. 

All in all, celebrations 
allowed students to vent 
all aspects of feelings 
from frustration to 
elation. Whether it be 
getting smashed at your 
favorite bar, or treating 
yourself to an ice cream 
sundae, celebrations 
helped make student life 
a little more bearable.

Vogue Campus Style 

Fashion is the current

Looking at the dress

that comes to mind is 

The average preppie 
dresser, who walked 
down the streets of 
Morgantown, found that 
the alligator on his shirt 
was eaten by many other 
styles of dress. 

He strolled through

Continuing his walk to 
class, the preppie passed 
people clad in everything 
from business suits to 
mini skirts. He soon 
noticed that one of the 
latest fashions was the 
prairie look. Girls were 
seen with ruffles around 
their necks, wrists, and at 
the bottom of their skirts. 
The outfit was not 
complete, however, until 
cowboy boots adorned 
their feet. 

Footwear serves to connpli- 
ment certain dress designs, as 
well as protect the feet. Rusty

team and band also had 
serious workouts to attend. 

A reception was held 
December 29 on the 
Jacksonville Beach, and 
pep rally was held the next 
day at the Hilton, 

Uncharacteristic rainy 
and cold weather plagued 
game day. Hard rain fell 
during most of the game, 
making the field slick and 

Also uncharacteristic 
was WVU's poor 
performance. The 
Mountaineers were 
whipped 31-12 before a 
record Gator Bowl crowd of 
almost 81,000 and a 
national television 

First-quarter action went 
back and forth with FSU 
scoring on a 20-yard field 
goal. A personal foul, 

blocked punt, and 
interception were major 
WVU mistakes. 
Mountaineer Paul 
Woodside missed one field 
goal while FSU missed two. 

In the second period, 
Woodside hit a 45-yard 
field goal to tie the score at 
3-3. Seminole Billy Allen 
then took the next kickoff 
and ran 95 yards for a 
touchdown and a bowl 
record return. 

The next Mountie drive 
resulted in a 34-yard field 
goal from Woodside. An 
FSU drive with pass 
interference against WVU 
set up a touchdown pass, 
giving the Seminoles a 17-6 
lead at the half. 

Florida State was 
stopped on its first 
possession of the second 
half, and Willie Drewery 
returned the punt for a bowl 
record of 82 yards to the 
Seminole's 7-yard line. 

Despite the steady down 
pour, vocal fans let their 
support be known in

The next couple plays 
were no-gains, 
quarterback Jeff 
Hostetler was sacked, 
and the field goal 
attennpt failed. 

An 80-yard FSU 
scoring drive followed, 
making the score 24-7. 
WVU's next possession 
was short, and a long 
punt return was nullified 
by a clipping penalty. But 
this did not stop the 
Seminoles, though, as 
they marched 83 yards 
for a touchdown and 31- 
6 lead. 

A 73-yard Mountie 
drive was halted at the 9. 
Possessions led nowhere 
for either team until a 
WVU interception by 
Steve Newberry. 

Replacing Hostetler, 
Kevin White led a 96- 
yard drive for the only 

WVU touchdown on a 
26-yard pass to Darrell 
Miller. A two-point 
conversion failed leaving 
the final score 31-12. 

Although it was an 
unimpressive game, 
besides being wet and 
miserable, both teams 
received much well- 
earned national attention 
plus $650,000. 

West Virginia fans, 
though disappointed, 
were still proud of the 
team's record and the 
accomplishment of 
earning a bid to the

U Military 

Military experience was 
taken advantage of by many 
students enrolled in the 
Reserve Officers Training 

Formed by thie Morril Act in 
1862, the ROTC program 
enabled college students to 
take courses that vi/ould 
qualify them for a commission 
in the armed forces. 

Those involved in military 
sciences took part in various 
campus activities. They 
sponsored events during 
Homecoming and 
Mountaineer Weeks, provided 
a color guard for athletic 
events, and held several balls 
and other social events. 

Developing leadership 
qualities and academic 
prowess, the ROTC program 
was definitely "... a great 
place to start."

Springtime Epidemic 

Symptoms: an itching 
to toss one's textbooks 
in the nearest trash can, 
a rash from over- 
indulging in solar 
pleasures, an 
uncontrollable craving for 
GIF activities every day 
of the week and a 
burning desire to see 
waves crashing upon a 

Diagnosis: spring fever. 

It affected each of us 
in some manner, 
although many were 
inflicted year-round with 
the disease. 

Pain killers came as 
lake excursions, sleeping 
in, catching up on the 
soaps, opening a 
Moosehead beer, 
passing a frisbee or 
taking a road trip. 

The few weeks 
following spring break 
seemed to be the hardest 
time to keep up 
Lauderdale tans became 
top priority when 
choosing between 
physics class and the 
sun's beckoning rays. 

Despite the severity of 
the illness when finals 
rolled around, most 
survived with little more 
than a peeling nose and 
a lower physics grade. 

As the final poster was 
torn from the bedroom 
wall and the last book 
was sold back to the 
Book Store, the disease 
began vanishing, to 
remain dormant until 
next year. 

— Terri Weimer 

When the sun's rays peek through 

the clouds, students flock to the 

"Towers Beach" to combine 

sunning, studying and socializing. 

Warm spring afternoons and sunny Saturdays bring students 
out-of-doors. A Softball game is one of the activities at the 

Summit Hall picnic.

Finals over, students give a 
sigh of relief and look forward 
to packing all the momentos 
saved during the year — too 
good to toss out. Then the 
trouble begins of finding a way 
to send home the bags, 
boxes, trunks and suitcases. 

Spring week in April features 
a carnival at the Coliseum. 
Attendance was low because 
of rain. 

Dead week allows students to 
thrust all their energy and time 
into studying for finals without 
worrying about surprise 
quizzes or tests. In early 
February, University officials 
debated shortening the 
semester by eliminating dead 
week. They also considered 
dividing spring break into two 
separate weekends. That 
decision, however, was

Once a member of the Benny

Harry James has become 

legendary. His band got its 

first big break in 1941 with its 

rendition of "You Made Me 

Love You." 


Sounds from the '40s 

The big band sound 
came to Morgantown in 
the fall and swept a toe- 
tapping audience back 
through time to the '40s. 

Harry James and his

a full house October 3 at 
the CAC Concert 
Theater. He was 
sponsored by 
Contemporary Arts 
Committee of Student

performance entertained 
a community-membered 
audience but graying

The big band numbers

one of the songs which gained

Big Name Artists Satisfy All Tastes 

A chance to get 
rowdy, to be with friends 
and to just have a good 
time were reasons 
enough for students to 
attend concerts. 

Whether drawn by the 
sleekness of Pat Benatar 
or the charm of the Oak 
Ridge Boys, most 
students found at least 
one performer who 
suited their tastes. 

Other performers 
appearing at the 
Coliseum were Kenny 
Rogers, the Go Go's and 
the Grateful Dead. 

The Pop Arts 
Committee managed a 
sizable profit from the 
five concerts but not 
without criticism. 

When the committee 
announced that Rogers 
would make his second 
appearance In two years, 
much of the student 
population was 

An informal student 
survey by the Daily 
Athenaeum showed 
reaction was against 

Rogers 3-1. However, the 
concert still managed to 
attract a crowd of 
14,000, and for those 
students who attended, it 
was successful. 

"I just loved It. I could 
talk about It for hours. It 
was fantastic," said 
freshman Lisa Rogers. 

The September 29 
show opened with 
comedian Lonnie Shore. 
The Gatlln Brothers 
followed, performing 10 

After a brief 
intermission, Rogers 
appeared. Songs he 
performed Included such 
hits as "The Gambler," 
"Share Your Love," and 
"Love the World Away." 

Film clips from the 
movies "Coward of the 
County" and "Six Pack" 
were background visual 
attractions for Rogers' 

He concluded with 
"Lucille" and an encore 
of "Lady." 

In sharp contrast to 
Rogers' mellow, 

sophisticated style was 
the next group 
sponsored — the Go 
Go's. Sporting their 
traditional mini-skirts, the 
group appeared at the 
Coliseum for an October 
10 Homecoming concert. 

Although attendance 
was good, the majority 
left unimpressed. 

"I got bored," said 
freshman Stefanie Jones. 
"They just stood there 
and played like they 
weren't really Into It." 

The band, under 
direction of lead singer 
Belinda Carlisle, was 
preceded by a Flock of 
Seagulls, whose songs 
Included "I Ran." 

Despite rolls of toilet 
paper thrown on stage 
by the crowd, the Go 
Go's performed their hits 
"We've Got the Beat" 
and "Vacation." 

If nothing else, the 
concert did give students 
an opportunity to punk 
out. Mini-skirts, wild 
hairdos, and Devo 
glasses were popular. 

Concluding with the classic 

"Summertime," tlie Grateful 

Dead leave behind an

A 'Complete Athlete' Is One Well-Prepped 

What produced strong 
linemen, powerful batters, 
enduring point-guards, 
vigorous tumblers, and 
explosive sprinters? 

Although innate ability 
and fine coaching had a 
lot to do with their 
success, the flexibility and 
strength programs 
coordinated by Coach 
Dave Van Halanger 
helped make the athletic 
teams the strongest and 
best prepared in 
University history. 

Through careful 
planning and 
organization, Van 
Halanger developed a 
program based on two 
objectives: to get the 
athlete to perform his best 
and to limit the number of 
injuries during the season. 
To achieve these 
objectives, the athlete 
had to keep up with the 
set time schedules of the 
program and employ 
proper techniques.

A Powerho 

Football season 
opened with many 
questions. The potential 
was there; everyone 
knew that, but key 
questions remained. 

It wasn't long before 
the Mountaineers 
received answers. 

September 1 1, in 
Norman, Oklahoma, the 
team startled even their 
most loyal fans when 
they upset the 
powerhouse Sooners, 

The end of the first 
quarter saw Oklahoma 
leading 14-0; their 
rushing game was 
moving along. 

But someone forgot to 
tell the Mounties that 
they were supposed to 
fold up at this point. 

WVU exploded for 20 
points in the second 
quarter, including a 33- 
yard bomb to Darrell 
Miller with five seconds 
left in the half. 

Oklahoma made a 
serious run in the third 
quarter and tied the 
ballgame at 27. But, 

again, WVU answered 
the call with 14 points in 
the last quarter to finish 
the contest.

Penn State, the meet 
marked the first time 
WVU had outscored 
Penn State in the history 
of the track program. 

Outstanding individual 
performances were 
turned in throughout the 
season by top runners: 
Doug Molnar, David Van 
Guilder, Joe Wangugi 
and Neal. 

At the season's end, it 
was announced that 
Assistant Coach Carl 
Hatfield, a former All- 
American, planned to

College in the fall. 

The women's cross 
country team produced 
their finest season ever.

of 37-13. 

Top veterans included 
junior standout Kathy 
Warlow, former WV State 
Champion Susie Comer 
and Dana Bredice. 

However, a successful 
season was not limited to 
the performances of 
seasoned returnees. 

"To be a factor in all 
meets, we have to get 
production out of our 
new recruits. I know what 
our veterans can do, but 
we are going to have to 
rely on some freshmen if 
we are to have an 
outstanding season," 
said King to a Sports 
Information writer. 

Among the talented 
recruits was freshman 
Kris Kavetski, a former 
Maryland State 
Champion. Newcomers 
rounding out the 1982 
recruiting class were Lisa 
Ayers and Mary Hines. 

The squad turned in an 
excellent performance at 
the Eastern Regionals 
with Kavetski finishing 
17th, Warlow 28th and 
Comer 32nd.

The life of a coach 
seldom was one of wine 
and roses. Rather, it was 
filled with headaches and 

Year-round, coaches 
were busy with recruiting, 
learning the newest rules 
and regulations, 
outwitting the opponent 
with a new play and 
keeping the athletes at 
their ultimate playing 

Recruiting began as 
soon as the last season 
ended. Traveling across 
the nation, coaches 
looked for the most 
talented young athletes 
for the University. 

Throughout the 
recruiting period, 
coaches also had to 
stress the conditioning of 
athletes. Time spent 
working in the weight 
room and with strength 
programs became a 
major part of the

against opponents. 
Triumphs were 
interspersed with that 
heartbreaking defeat.

season game was over, 
preparations were made 
for tournament action. 
Usually that meant 
traveling some distance 
across the nation, but 
infrequently that meant 
staying at home if the

After the trophies were 
handed out, the circle of 
recruiting and 
conditioning continued.

William and Mary's 
visit to Morgantown did 
little to mar the home win

Returning to the 
Coliseum after two 
straight losses, Jones 
showed fans that 
composure and finesse 
could get the winning 
streak going again. 

With one second 
remaining on the clock, 

the Ail-American guard 
hit a three-point field 
goal, pulling WVU ahead 
of the Temple Owls, 73-

a fine night, hitting nine

scoring 22 points and 
dominating the boards 
with 14 rebounds. 

That one game 
winning streak was 
broken when Penn State 
took control on their 
home court at University

Jones scored a game- 
high 33 points, the 
Mountaineers still faced 
their first Atlantic 10 loss 
of the season. 

Again, a bitter rival 
determined the fate of 
WVU. The Pitt Panthers 
dominated the game at 
the Fitzgerald Field 
House, winning 81-67. 
This loss was the fourth 
in five games for WVU. 

Back in the "Cat

managed a fine showing 
against Duquesne. 
Paced by co-captains

Standing Tall with the Top Teams 

Although the women's 
basketball team was not 
ranked among the 
nation's best, the 
squad's performance 
throughout the season 
proved it is on its way up 
to the upper echelon. 

The toughest schedule 
in the history of the 
women's basketball 
program faced the team. 

Competing against the 
likes of Tennessee, Old 
Dominion, Penn State 
and Rutgers, the 
Mountaineers defied the 
opposition to maintain a 
17-12 record. 

Coach Kittle 
Blakemore's charges 

opened the season at 
Tennessee, but found the 
Volunteers to be too 
powerful and bowed to 
Mary Ostrowski's 
leadership, losing 93-70. 

That game set the tone 
for what would be a 
rollercoaster season.

lost another chance for 
national attention, 74-47. 

The remainder of the

with its peaks and 
valleys. Wins over

A Grab Bag of Sports 

While you're skimming 
through the Daily 
Athenaeum, a special 
sports club notice happens 
to catch your eye. it reads: 

"The WVU water polo 
team had its first game of 
the season . . ." 

Hey, I didn't even know 
WVU had a water polo 

Although not widely 
known throughout campus, 
University sports clubs and 
intramurals provided an 
outlet for students with 
adventurous spirits, athletic 
learnings, go-getter 
personalities and leisure 

Sports clubs to suit just 
about any temperament 
were to be found. Ice 
hockey, fencing, rowing, 
frisbee, white water rafting, 
skiing, rugby, lacrosse and, 
yes, water polo numbered 
among the clubs. 

Intramurals offered 

diversions from the books 
yearlong. If a student was 
especially familiar with a 
basketball but just not 
good enough for Coach 
Catlett, intramural 
basketball was a possible 
solution for him. 

Friends in a dorm hall, 
neighbors on a street, 
buddies in classes, friends 
at work, Greeks made up 
teams to participate in flag 
football, soccer, volleyball, 
basketball, softball and 
many other sports. 

Teams were not always 
needed though. Individual 
sports, such as tennis and 
racquetball were 
sponsored by the 
Intramurals Committee of 
Student Administration.

Who needs snow? A ski 

course at the Med Center 
whets appetites for winter. 

The ice hockey team's 

Randy Ofensend (24) 
attempts to score but is foiled 
by the Slippery Rock defense. 

Jumping looks easy for 

equestrian coach Michele 

Koury and her mount. 

No holds barred, the rugby 
team practices all sorts of tac- 
tics for the season. 

146 / Sports Clubs 

Coxswain Jenny Bishop calls 
the rhythm for her crew to pull 
on a straight course. The crew 
team was not confined to the 
Monongahela River. 
Competitions against other 
schools led the team into 
strange waters, including the 
Schuylkill in Phildelphia. 


Getting drenched is half the 

fun. Danger, excitement and 

satisfaction are discovered on 

the Cheat River by students 

who belong to the University 

w/hite water club. 

The agony of pushing herself 

to the limit to stop the ball 

carrier, Janet Montgomery of 

the Sweetness team, shows 

on Tracy Wampold's face. 

Sweetness played the Old 

Pro's at Mountaineer Field in 

an intramural contest. 


148 / Sports Clubs 

More dangerous than 
football, rugby features 
aggressive play without the 
protection of helmets or pads. 
The University rugby team 
charges the Charleston ball 
carrier in a game at 
Mountaineer Field. 

Even the scoreboard at 

Mountaineer Field applauds 
the frisbee craze despite a 
losing effort by the 
University. Warm weather 
induces students to break 
from their books to play. 

Too anxious to wait for snow, 
ski club members stay in 
practice, grass skiing at the Med 

Sports Clubs/ 149 

Up for grabs, the ball eludes 

the grasps of the Mountaineer 

rugby team and the visiting 

Charleston squad. Ted 

McClain and Richard Bowling 

fight for the ball for the 

University's effort. 

Mountaineer Ken Thring 

breaks free from the pack and 

runs to score while John Lynn 

blocks for him against 


All that's missing is the 

snow, but grass skiing at f^ed 

Center Hill is the next best 

thing as this ski club member 

can attest.

Placekicker Andrea 

DeFabio puts all her might 

into her kick to start the 

game as Melissa Ford runs 

down field. 

An overhead shot of the

perfect synchronization is 
needed in rowing.

Membership in 
Mountain, the elite 
society for University 
leaders, was considered 
to be one of the most 
prestigious honors on 

j- A link between the 
student body and 
faculty, Mountain served 
as a spokesman for 
undergraduate students. 

The constitution for the 
society, which was 
organized in 1904, reads: 

The object . . . shall be 
to harmonize the various 
lines of University life and 
thusunify their isolated 
and conflicting opinions; 
to exalt the ideals and to 
purify and dignify the 
interests of college men. 

Many students may 

not remember hearing of 
Mountain; the society 
maintained a policy of 
working in obscurity. 

Although this 
anonymity has made 
documenting the history 
difficult, available 
records show Mountain 
has continually 
supported enlarging the 
class curriculum. Notably 
in 1939 a major 
augmentation of classes 
included marital relations 
classes. A four-year 
program for the School 
of Medicine was also 
backed by the society. 

Tutoring and 
counseling services had 
been offered by 
members to University 

Guarding over 
students' academic 
honor. Mountain had 
conducted investigations 
of cheating in 1948 and 
reported their results to 
University administration. 

Concern for the qualify 
of educators at the 
University prompted 
Mountain to evaluate 

To recognize and 
honor outstanding 
sophomores, in 1955 
Mountain organized the 
sophomore honorary 

Mountain also had 
sponsored a 
Mountaineer Week team 
which encouraged state 
high school students to 
take advantage of 

opportunities and to 
promote the University. 
Mountain selected and 
financed those WVU 
spokesmen, who 
traveled statewide. 

One of the most visible 
contributions Mountain 
has made to the 
University was the 
Mountaineer statue in 
front of the Lair. In 1948 
Mountain member Arch 
Moore proposed the idea 
for a concrete symbol of 
the Mountaineer spirit. 
The 8'6" model was 
created by Donald 
DeLue after much 
debate on the design of 
the statue.

Taking Pride in Music 

Nicknamed the "Pride

1971, the band had 
grown steadily. Aiding

two feature twirlers and 
two field conductors, 
were percussion

Satterfield, and graduate 
assistants Gordon Allen 
and Dave Williams.

before the beginning of

classes began, practices 
continued from eight to 
ten hours weekly. 
Assigned rank and 
section leaders helped 
teach the different shows 
to band members. 

New halftime shows 
were learned for each 
home game; many were 
worked up in four days. 
The pregame show was 
learned at band camp 
but was continually 
practiced throughout the 

This show consisted of 
many of the drills which 
the band had become 
known for, such as a 
running entrance, the 
double WVU pattern, an 
expanding circle drill, 
and the state's outline. 

The band was not 
restricted to Morgantown

At the Gator Bowl, the

Despite cutbacks, still ... A Cut Above 

Fall 1982 — Spring 1983 It 

was a time of cuts — budget cuts, 
class cuts, facilities cuts, financial 
aid cuts, etc. The year had a 
variety of cuts which students 
were forced to encounter. 

But, the year also held in store a 
number of pleasant surprises. It 
will be remembered for those 
inspirited football games and 
tailgate parties. The upset win 
against Oklahoma will be recalled 
just as will that Gator Bowl title 
that eluded us. True, that defeat 
will not be fondly thought of, 
especially by those of the 
thousands who traveled to Florida 
to sit on rain soaked bleachers 
and peer through the raindrops 
during the heart breaking loss. 

Memories were shared with 

friends, whether they be of an 
afternoon spent at the Arboretum 
or Coopers' Rock, of all-nighter 
cram sessions for that organic 
test, of skipping the 9:30 political 
science lecture to drive your 
neighbor to the airport for a long- 
awaited trip home, of the loyal 
friends who would jump out of a 
tree or off that eight-foot brick wall 
so you, a budding Photography 
120 student could get the picture 
of a lifetime. 

The year's memories continued 
with recollections of ski trips to 
Wisp and Canaan — the 
exhilaration of flying down a slope 
until that one turn, a little too 
sharp, lands you flat on your back.

was a memorable night, 
comparable only to the 
excitement of the Pat Benatar 
concert. The CAC's "Fiddler on 
the Roof" was as much a success 
as the rifle team which captured 
the national title. 

The televised Nevada-Las 
Vegas game at the Coliseum was 
not easily wiped from the diary's 
page as the Mountaineers bested 
the number one ranked team in 
the nation, 87-78. 

Those energetic days of getting 
in shape after wintry days of pizza 
and hot chocolate will be thought 
of with grimaces. Jogging at the 
Old Stadium or around the 
Engineering Building and the Med 
Center will not be forgotten, along 
with the leg cramps, blisters and 
shin splints.

. . .A Cut Above con' 

Rumors of the effects on spring 
break and finals week worried 
students for weeks. University 
officials debated enforcing 
furloughs for staff members and 
shortening the semester by 
splitting up spring break and 
eliminating dead week. Summer 
school also came under fire in 
efforts to comply with cuts called 
by Governor Jay Rockefeller and 
the Board of Regents. 

However, officials decided to 
forego the changes by postponing 
any salary increases. The Med 
Center also took a large cut in its 

Height holds no fear for these students 
who enjoy the Spring Week carnival at

Spring break trips to Ft. 
Lauderdale, Florida, New York 
City or Myrtle Beacli were 
anxiously awaited by many. 
Finances, tlnougli, called many 
students home to work or just live 
cheaply for the nine days. 

Finals came quickly, too quickly 
for most. Out came coffee cups, 
the Beethoven symphonies and 
that almost forgotten notebook 
filled with goodies from the start of 
the semester. 

The anticipation and sadness of 
leaving friends, going home and 
finding employment was poignant 
but even more intense for 
graduating seniors, who ended a 
familiar life only to begin a new, 
unknown existence. 

Regardless of the year's 
financial setbacks, shortages and 
mishaps. University students kept 
their heads and spirits up to 
remain a cut above the rest.

Editor's Note 

As the final layout is being drawn and the last bit of copy is fitted, I look back on the chaotic year and 
find it amazing that the 1983 Monticola is finished. 

Financial woes and staff problems forced my associate editor, Brenda Burnside, and myself to complete 
the book over the summer months, which is the reason for its late delivery. I hope that the few months you 
■ spent waiting for its arrival was worth the lifetime of memories this yearbook holds. 

I owe a special thanks to Brenda, who was not just an associate, she was a full-fledged partner. Max 
Simunich, the Monticola business manager, also helped tremendously throughout the year. 

Although there was talk that this would be the last year for the yearbook, the support of Brentz 
Thompson and the faith of the Board of Regents has given the 1984 Monticola a chance to become a 

It was an honor and privilege to put together this log of people, places and events pertaining to West 
Virginia University throughout 1982-83.
